A Marketing Budget is a priority to successful business owners. In the beginning you will find a lot of ways to promote your business for free. There are ways to share your business strengths with one on one conversations. THAT is free. You can tell everyone you meet about your business in this manner.
Then there is sharing information about your business on every Social Media platform you can think of . Facebook LinkedIn and YouTube are free. You can get great results from these platforms if you know how to share your business properly on SOCIAL sites. Notice the word SOCIAL…There is a ratio of social to business posts you share to get the right responses.
You can also join networking communities that have already collected the people you want to serve . Then make a commitment to participate on a regular basis. There is a comfort level people have with someone they see on a regular basis in their community. This comfort level helps you have better rapport with people and then they will open up and work with you.
The above are FREE but to go to higher levels of income you will need to invest in marketing that costs. There smaller investments like flyers and brochures. There may be business signs etc . You can also invest in better quality business cards.
These items need a budget. You can start with a small amount and as your business grows then you can increase the amount
You will never have a strong business focusing on only FREE marketing tools. To make more money you want to start asking yourself, “Where can I find the money to INVEST more money into my marketing?’ If not you will not make more money.
For the month of May I will be posting marketing tips at Wendy Lovejoy Coaching on Facebook and I will share more YouTube videos.
You can also email your questions and I will answer them through the my videos and posts.
Until then use the FREE platforms BUT create a budget that causes you to stretch to make it happen. Then put that budget to use ONLY for Marketing and watch your business soar…
